St Barnabas

& St Paul's Church of England Primary School

Governing Body

Welcome to our Governors Section

 

Our team of governors have a range of experience and expertise, including some representatives of the local community. Many have a thorough working knowledge of the school, and make a point of spending time in the classrooms with the children and staff. They attend training courses on all aspects of the curriculum and school management to ensure they have the necessary knowledge and skills to support the Headteacher in the effective running of the school.

 

The Governing Body takes a largely strategic role in the running of school. This includes:

  • Ensuring the school's vision, ethos and strategic direction reflect those of the Church of England.

  • Setting its aims and objectives. 

  • Setting policies and targets for achieving the objectives.

  • Reviewing progress and reviewing the strategic framework in the light of progress.

  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure money is well spent.
